Based off of https://github.com/davibennun/laravel-push-notification with support for Laravel 5 and 5.1.
composer.json file to include this package as a dependency
Register the PushNotification service provider by adding it to the providers array in the
'providers' => array( 'Witty\LaravelPushNotification\PushNotificationServiceProvider' )
Alias the PushNotification facade by adding it to the aliases array in the
'aliases' => array( 'PushNotification' => 'Witty\LaravelPushNotification\PushNotification', )
Copy the config file into your project by running
php artisan vendor:publish
This will generate a config file like this
array( 'iOS' => [ 'environment' => env('IOS_PUSH_ENV', 'development'), 'certificate' => env('IOS_PUSH_CERT', __DIR__ . '/ios-push-notification-certificates/development/certificate.pem'), 'passPhrase' => env('IOS_PUSH_PASSWORD', '291923Job'), 'service' => 'apns' ], 'android' => [ 'environment' => env('ANDROID_PUSH_ENV', 'development'), 'apiKey' => env('ANDROID_PUSH_API_KEY', 'yourAPIKey'), 'service' => 'gcm' ] );
Where all first level keys corresponds to an service configuration, each service has its own properties, android for instance have
apiKey and IOS uses
passPhrase. You can set as many services configurations as you want, one for each app. A directory with the name 'ios-push-notification-certificates' will be added to the config folder for you to store both development and production certificates.
PushNotification::app('iOS') ->to($deviceToken) ->send('Hello World, i`m a push message');
